Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Ilves and SJK face each other at Tammelan Stadion in what is expected to be a very exciting game. Ilves continue with their habit of producing fine displays at home, while struggling on the travels, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s football match. A man to watch in the home team will be defender Diogo Thomas, who scored a brace in the 3-2 loss to Lahti.
SJK, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their seven-game winless run in the Veikkausliiga. Jani Honkavaara’s troops have already suffered two defeats on the road this season, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Ilves’ party at Tammelan Stadion. In their last meeting in the national championship Ilves recorded a routine 3-0 win over SJK, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
